RBC Canadian Open Betting Tips

RBC Canadian Open betting tipsRBC Canadian Open betting tips & predictions – the RBC Canadian Open was first played in 1904 by the Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA). It is the third oldest continuously running tournament on the PGA Tour after the British Open Championship and the US Open.

Hamilton Golf & Country Club hosts this year’s tournament having been played for four years in-a-row at the Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Hamilton Golf & Country Club began in 1894 and was originally designed by Harry Colt. The club comprises 27 holes made up of three 9-hole courses called the West, South and East Courses. The West Course makes up the front nine for the RBC Canadian Open with the back nine played on the South Course. The layout will play as a Par 70 that can stretch to 6,966 yards from the championship tees.

The club has previously hosted five Canadian Opens;

  • 1919, won by J. Douglas Edgar
  • 1930, won by Tommy Armour
  • 2003, won by Bob Tway
  • 2006, won by Jim Furyk
  • 2012, won by Scott Piercy

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Hamilton Golf & Country Club hosting its first Canadian Open.

The course is a classic design with tree-lined fairways, elevation changes and smaller than average greens. The course boasts a strong set of Par 3’s with three playing over 200+ yards and the other at 188 yards.

The layout and design of Hamilton G&CC features superb routing with holes that keep the layout challenging despite its lack of length. This week looks like accuracy will trump distance and finding the right parts of the fairway to attack the greens will be key.

The RBC Canadian Open is a hard one to assess due to course rotation and it’s new slot before the US Open. With unfamiliar greens serving as targets, Strokes Gained Tee-To-Green will be a key consideration. Those in tune with distance and accuracy who sink their fair share of putts should thrive.

Scott Piercy won in 2012 on a score of -17 (263) and in 2006 Jim Furyk won on a score of -14 (266) suggesting that a fast start is important.

This is one of those weeks to approach with caution.

Matt Kuchar golf betting tipsMatt Kuchar 22/1 (E/W) – sticking with Kooch again this week after his uncharacteristic MC in last week’s Memorial Tournament.
